Atlanta Market Reports Attendance Growth

This week's January 2014 Atlanta International Gift & Home Furnishings Market reported big gains across the board, with national and international attendance and first-to-market buyer totals leading growth.

On-site actual registrations for the eight-day market showed healthy year-over-year gains with increases as high as 53 percent posted on key attendance days. Preliminary hotel occupancy results reports indicated an increase in the average length of stay per attendee to 4.2 days, the highest recorded since 2006.
Growth posted in all national regions beyond the show’s principal Southeast base--including the Midwest and Far West--plus international beyond the Americas delivered global buying power to exhibitors across all product categories in showrooms and trade show booths.
The Market’s first-time buyer total saw high double-digit increases.  Meanwhile, reports from exhibitors throughout the Market, across showrooms and trade show booths, echoed strong sales—more orders, larger orders, from new and returning accounts.
Powering momentum throughout the Market was the new AmericasMart App, which, according to iTunes, was among the 10 most popular apps in all business-to-business categories.
